Inspiration: Art

Body Doodle

by OKAT 7

These are not tattoos. These are not even henna tattoos. These are spontaneous and improvised doodles done with a pen or marker while (for the most part) sitting around bored one day. Found via flickr, see and read about them here »

  2. Unusual but awesome, all the people make all the same tattoos, it is something like tattoo fashion :) the author is so creative :))

  3. very interesting. i have never thought of it as an art formed before, but now that i think of it, i have seen some rather interesting doodles on skin. (i tattooed one of my doodles on my big toe.)
